Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Truck Rental industry exhibits a high level of capital intensity. Using wages as a proxy for labour and depreciation as a proxy for capital, for every dollar spent on labour, operators are expected to spend $1.43 on capital in 2014. Industry firms must allocate significant funds toward truck and trailer purchases, accounting for this high level of capital intensity. Moreover, many firms offer maintenance services, necessitating the purchase of diagnostic equipment and a range of tools and spare parts.

Nevertheless, the industry does still have a significant labour component; wages are expected to account for 13.0% of revenue in 2014, with the average employee making $40,035 per year... purchase to read more
